Birthing began in the evening of Memorial Day, and finished just after mid-night. Everything went about as smoothly as could be hoped for. Powder was a champ through the process, and is being a very attentive mother. As an added bonus she is really looking great, eating well, and producing plenty of milk. The pups are all doing very well, and all put at least a full ounce of weight on by dinner time last night. We managed to get in a vet check yesterday as well, and our vet was pleased with everyone's condition. We have 1 Girl and 5 Boys. and are now left with the hardest job yet: don't screw it up!
I'm just a guy suffering with an infatuation with gundogs since childhood. Forty some odd years later this is what you get.
